As more African and Middle Eastern business schools make their presence known in the international market, opportunities arise that allow students and faculty to integrate and connect with institutions globally. The exposure undoubtedly leads to stronger ties between cultures, economies and gives way to knowledge sharing; in return increasing the value schools can offer to their primary stakeholders. There are, however, multiple hurdles and strategies for schools that wish to become more international may need to consider.
In this workshop, the first dedicated to African and Middle Eastern business schools, speakers will delve into their personal experiences on internationalisation, sharing the steps they took and how they implemented their internationalisation strategies to build forward-thinking and internationally competitive institutions that aid in the transformation and advancement of their respective countries and regions.
